Evidence suggests that early diagnosis of Lymphoedema (tissue swelling often following breast cancer surgery) well before it becomes obvious, may reduce the risk by half of it developing. Early detection may then only require minimal intervention.
In-Balance is able to offer the latest tool in Lymphoedema diagnosis technology- the L-Dex Bio-impedence.
If treatment is required, In-Balance is the only clinic in Launceston offering the use of a scanning laser to help treat swelling associated with Lymphoedema.

Warm baths and hot springs have been seen as medical miracles through the ages. Mineral baths were used to cure all manner of afflictions and most people feel the benefit of warm water. Hydrotherapy is particularly helpful in the winter months when arthritis can flare up resulting in increased joint stiffness. There is much evidence that performing exercise in warm water can be beneficial in assisting healing from injury or surgery.
Acceleration Training™ with a Power Plate® machine creates multidirectional instability in the human body. With vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, 25 to 50 times per second. Some of the potential benefits may include improvement in bone density for osteoporosis, improved circulation and lymphatic return, reduction of post exercise muscle soreness and improved strength and balance. Ask your InBalance Physiotherapist if they feel you might benefit from using the Power Plate®.
